I can’t believe we are almost into June!! Wow – the time goes faster and
faster. Welcome back to our members who should now all be back in the area

We have had a very busy May and are looking forward to wrapping up our year
with our Annual Banquet, this year held at Bald Peak Colony Club, Rt. 109
South, Moultonborough. Bald Peak’s Clubhouse features an unparalleled view
of Lake Winnipesaukee across Moultonborough Bay. At this meeting, we
celebrate our past successes and induct our new slate of officers in a very
special ceremony conducted by Dotti Simpson. For those who have registered,
the date is Monday, June 4; arrival time is 11:30AM for the East Lounge and
Outer Terrace, with a Cash Bar. The plated lunch will be served around
12:15PM in the Main Dining Room. Note that Bald Peak is handicapped
accessible. Dress Code: No Jeans or Denim allowed.
If you haven’t yet registered, TODAY is the last day!!! (Okay, ‘today’
when you are probably reading this, which is either Wednesday, May 23 or
Thursday May 24!) Call Sharon Paton (978-808-5594) NOW!! Choose the Warm
Salmon or Cobb Salad entrée; the event is $35.
I hope to see you there!

Knitting for the Meredith Savings Bank’s Mitten Tree – Have time with your

bank also donates money for each knitted item! If you want to help with
this wonderful project, email Janet Schurko ([email protected]

to donate yarn please let Janet or Susan know.

co-chair for next year. Please contact me (Deb) if you are interested.
Please consider being part of the MWC Board and joining in the fun!
